Lavine is a Professor of Chemistry at Oklahoma State University where he both teaches and performs research in the area of analytical chemistry.  Lavine’s research interests encompass many aspects of chemometrics including pattern recognition, multivariate curve resolution, and multivariate calibration using genetic algorithms and other evolutionary techniques. Lavine graduated with his PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Pennsylvania State University in 1986.  He has published approximately 100 research papers, 20 book chapters, 16 review articles and has edited 3

2017 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Fields of Analytical Chemistry

The primary focus of Professor Pawliszyn’s research program is the design of highly automated and integrated instrumentation for the isolation of analytes from complex matrices and the subsequent separation, identification and determination of these species.  The primary separation tools used by his group are Gas Chromatography, Liquid Chromatography and Capillary Electrophoresis coupled to variety of detections systems, including range of mass spectrometry techniques. Currently his research is focusing on elimination of organic solvents from the sample preparation step to facilitate

2017 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in Mass Spectrometry

Dr. Scott A. McLuckey earned his B.S. in chemistry from Westminster College in 1978 and his Ph.D. degree in 1982 from Purdue University in Analytical Chemistry.  Directly following graduation from Purdue, he spent one year as a visiting scientist at the FOM Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics in Amsterdam.  In late 1983, he joined the Analytical Chemistry Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory as a Eugene P. Wigner Fellow.   In January, 1990 he was named Head of the Analytical
